|One of the nicest ways to totally transform your garden is to set up a garden pond. For many, this is probably a job best left to the experts, although a good pond and aquarium supplies shop will be more than happy to show you all the equipment you will need and advise on size, position and more.|
If you plan and place a garden pond strategically, it can be a real joy. A haven for small wildlife, a tranquil, cool spot, and stocked properly, you will have the pleasure of watching your koi grow and develop.
If you do self build, the easiest way is to purchase a hard bottomed moulded pond, as these will negate the problem of soft skinned ponds - leaks. If however, you are limited in space, or have an awkward shape, this may not be the best option and you may need to opt for something more flexible. Speak to your pond and aquaria specialist for the best options for you.
